"Saturday Night Live" last night introduced the trailer for a new thriller: "The Day Beyonce Turned Black."

"For white people, it was just another great week," explains a gravelly voiced narrator. "Then, a day before the Super Bowl, it happened."

"Hot sauce in my bag swag?" says one white guy (Beck Bennet) listening to Beyonce's new song "Formation" at work. "What does that mean?"

"Maybe song isn't for us," says another confused white coworker (Bobby Moynihan).

"But usually everything is," screams a third (Cecily Strong).

There's white mayhem in the streets of Manhattan.

"What about 'Single Ladies'?" asks one white lady (Kate McKinnon), who's told by a black guy (Kenan Thompson) that Beyonce was black in that song too. "What about the Pink Panther movie?"

"She was white in that," says Thompson.

Watch the full trailer below:
